Dark Shadows

In 1752, the Collins and their son Barnabas set sail from Liverpool for America to rid themselves of the mysterious curse that hangs over their family. Over the years, Barnabas (Johnny Depp), an unrepentant playboy, becomes a rich and powerful man who makes the mistake of breaking Angelique Bouchard's (Eva Green) heart. She, who is a witch, condemns him to a fate worse than death: she turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. Two centuries later, in 1972, Barnabas manages to get out of his tomb and finds himself in an unrecognizable world. An adaptation of the television series created by Dan Curtis in 1966, which had a remake in 1991.
